Because then you have to define momentary, 1sec 10sec 100sec ? this way You define momentary by holding down on the button as long as required.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

General Mach Discussion / Re: Playing with Mach3 demo newbie CNC
« on: May 10, 2014, 11:44:42 AM »
That is a Cam/post problem. It is not doing what you ask OR you are not telling to do it correctly.

Mach3 will only do what the Gcode tells it to do.

Most times in CAM you have an option as to where  POINT OF ORIGIN will be such as lower left, center of drawing or where you define it to be such as a center of a circle in the part.

Sometimes you can define the Point of Origin in the CAD side and then the CAM side will follow it.

Hope that helps, (;-) TP

HIYA GUYS,G60 doe not seem to work correctly. The #param does not work and the toolpath seems a bit strange for a G60 as I remember it. 

The toolpaths are not consistant with the Gcode intent.  The toolpaths should still follow the Gcode intent from point to point THEN correct for Backlash and proceed.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

HIYA Craigs , a dual gated button like down/up is used when you need to create a function like an air blast. WHen you push the button down and HOLD(down) it activates the air blast. When you release (up) it shuts it off.

It could also work to jog the spindle (rotation)

OK THIS aint happening (;-) The best I can do it end up with a hand full of error messages AND lock up mach4.

QUESTION in the keyboard config it asks all the important question to set up a hotkey(very Simple) To the far right side there is a FUNCTION box BUT it only has jog functions. Could not the REST of mach4 function be added to the list. Things like cycle start,load Gcode,edit gcode,etc.

AND add a CustomFunction selection where you just drop your SuperFunction() code into the window and be done with it.

Easy Peasy, Yous guys are programmers right ? PLEASE throw some magic monkey dust at it and make it happen.  Something as important as Hotkeys for NON MOUSE control panels should be an automatic and easy thing to assign for a CNC controller (;-).

Just a thought, (;-) TP

SUbs and tool comp can be a problem even with 1 sub as well as G2/G3. Some routines never fail and some similar fail every time. You wil never KNOW if it works until you try the routine.

PROPER leadins and lead outs are very important to Tool Comp as with Mach3 if it does not have enough room to function it will MAKE room and normally in an ODD way.

So it is YOUR choice to use Mach3 or NOT, Like I said the problem was fixed in Mach4( yet to be released). I have  beat on it seven ways to sunday and it has yet to fail in Tool Comp. IF my sometimes ODD way of programming does not trip it up it must be good.

Last quirk for the evening G9 does not work.

I have been sweeping through the Gcode again.

(;-) TP

HIYA Steve, G81 is still broken. It will not index the A xis correctly  and it start the Z down before the a axis gets to tthe endpoint of the A move. Then it start rotating while the Z is drilling.

G83 AND g73 ignore the Q param. Also it moves between points in A at feedrate not rapid.

Here is the test code.

G90 G80
G00 Z1.0000 A0.000
 M3 S500
 G94
 G99 G73 X2.5000 Y0.0000 A0.0000 Z-.1200 R0.1000 Q0.500 F10.0000 L0
G90 A45
A90
A135
A180
G80
G90
G94
 M30

YES I found teh always on top button thanks. Also double checked some System #Param like 5301 5302 read them like a champ.

NOW IF you can stop that @#$%^&* flicker in the Var window (;-) TP

Thnaks Steve,  (;-) TP

The #var Display works fine. The only odd thing about it is it FLASHES 2 times a second IF the Gocde is NOT running. If the file is running then it is SMOOTH displaying.

Also the range of VArs not active but displayed show a LARGE long number  ???

(;-) Could you make it a sticky always on top. I keep loosing it.

also tested persistant #Vars  ROGER A ok (;-)  Used the var monitor to do it (;-) HEHEHEHE


THANKS Steve and company(;-) , (;-) TP
